paintBackground() call issue 5.0 and 6.0

Hi ,

 

I am doing some background painting in my extended veritcal field manager.

 

It seems to be no output when I run using 5.0 and 6.0 and I added a break point then realised that the metod was not called at all.

 

But works fine with 7.0.

 

Any help?

Re: paintBackground() call issue 5.0 and 6.0

I am not aware of any difference between the invocations of paintBackground based on OS level, and I use this method in a number of cross OS Level applications.

 

It is now largely redundant because of the setBackground() methods available since OS 4.6, so I would urge you to consider swapping to using setBackground() rather than paintBackground().  I still use paintBackground because I am old school....

 

If you want to continue using paintBackground(), can you supply us with a small standalone piece of code that demonstrates the problem.  Something that we should be able to put in a test screen we have and then be able to run on OS 6.0 and OS 7.0 Simulators to see the problem.
